Flop Fu: Physics Fighter Review

7
Flop Fu Physics Fighter for Android character select

Fighting games can be difficult to adapt to touch-screen play. Developers either have to implement imprecise virtual controls or greatly simplified control schemes in order to make them work. But what if a fighting game maker actually made the controls unwieldy on purpose, kind of like Octodad: Deadliest Catch on PC? Then you’d get the very silly Flop Fu: Physics Fighter from GREE and G-labs.

Flop Fu is an Android-exclusive free-to-play one-on-one fighting game. With lots of characters, barely any in-app purchases, and real-time online multiplayer, it could almost pass as a serious fighting game… If everyone didn’t flop and fly insanely around using amped-up ragdoll physics. Bring your sense of humor along when downloading.

Chrome Beta update lets you 'undo' a closed tab, adds support for some multi-window devices

Chrome Beta

Quickly re-open that tab you accidentally closed while reading

Those of you on the beta track of Chrome on Android will be receiving an update today with a small, but useful, set of features. First up is the ability to "undo" an accidental tab closure — something that we're all used to being able to do on desktop browsers. Next is improvements to the video player, letting your phone or tablet make use of HTML5 full-screen video with subtitles and on-screen playback controls.

The update also includes support for the multi-window features on some devices (although which ones aren't specified), as well as support for sending some videos from the browser to Chromecast directly. The update is now available from the Play Store at the link above, so long as you're okay with moving over to the beta channel of the browser.
